                  Graduate of our two-module seminar on Facilitating Multi-Stakeholder Dialogues

We believe that the challenge of sustainability has reached all actors in the global society. Multi-
Stakeholder Dialogues have become a key element for finding solutions to complex problems.
However, not always do stakeholder dialogues lead to concrete results.

What is essential for their success?

Do you need to build trust-based stakeholder relationships and partnerships with multiple
stakeholders in standard development, regional development, company stakeholder engagement
und sustainability strategies? What are effective ways of engaging stakeholders to ensure
collective knowledge and individual experience and expertise are harvested sufficiently? What is
the methodology that generates productive multi-stakeholder dialogue? How can you build
capacity for constructive and successful outcomes around complex social, political and
environmental issues?
Our two-module dynamic program is designed to help you build your strategic abilities and your
implementation skills in stakeholder engagement and dialogue. You will exchange experience,
gain insights, knowledge and facilitation skills to build consensus-building stakeholder
relationships, convene networks for high impact solutions, and create the space for learning and
collaborating with different stakeholders.

Further comments from participants who recently completed the course:

“The importance of Multi-Stakeholder Dialogues consists of direct communication
between different stakeholders with specific interests, but with same goals. The CLI
facilitates in a professional way the preparation and implementation of this direct
communication in the frame of MSDs”.

“The seminar was perfect in exemplifying the dialogic facilitation approach, and
experiencing that was as important as the content that was taught. What I learned will help
me reflecting my own journey and role as a facilitator”.
